BEHIND THE SCENES OF BUILDING OUT NOBU MIAMI
Nobu Miami at the Eden Roc in Miami Beach celebrates its first-year anniversary this month. Under the leadership of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, SPACiO was fortunate to be part of the team that made it happen.
In retrospect, we can proudly say that building out Nobu was one of our Top-10 projects in terms of complexity and sophistication. One part of the design, for example, involved converting a previous outdoor dining space into an exquisite indoor dining area. This included fabricating and installing curved wood screens that would separate areas of the restaurant, then installing a complex system of 10-foot wide wood-and-glass doors that open and stack to provide an inside/outside feel to the dining room. Now, when the wood-and-glass doors open, Nobu Miami becomes the largest Nobu restaurant in the world.
Chef Matsuhisa sought the “best of the best” to build out the space. For example, the stone flooring was imported from Italy, the oak flooring from Denmark and many other finishes are derived from around the world. Nobu truly adds an extra level of sophistication to the iconic Eden Roc.
If you haven’t done so already, we suggest that you visit Nobu to enjoy the exclusive Teppan Room and signature dishes such as Yellowtail and Jalapeno and Black Cod Miso. We are positive that the superb cuisine and ambiance will create an unforgettable dining experience for you and your guests.
